The Effect by Lucy Prebble

“Clever direction and a sharp script make for a wild ride in Capital T’s The Effect” – Austin Arts Watch

effect_scr_jpg2effect“There’s a lot to be said and considered within this script about the fragility of the brain, the morality behind human testing, and how much weight we place on our emotions as mere biological impulses. Like all good scripts that ask questions of their characters and audiences, there are no correct answers but that doesn’t dampen the thoughts evoked from the conversations. The Effect is a playful wonder at one moment and a philosophical scare the next, but it never surrenders its ingenuity of storytelling and production values. As expected from her previous work, Lily Wolff has directed another outstanding piece of insightful, entertaining theatre that you’d be remiss to miss.” – Austin Entertainment Weekly

“As I have stated before, Capital T has a real gift for producing black comedy, and THE EFFECT is yet another gem to add to their crown. I always know when I go to see one of their productions that I am going to be highly entertained and will have much to digest and consider long after the show is over.  I highly recommend THE EFFECT. This is a show with a powerful message that is powerfully performed and will make you both laugh and be deeply moved.” – Austin Broadwayworld

““The Effect” is a complex play dealing with important contemporary issues, but at its heart it is a moving story about the ways in which love can only coexist alongside the many lies we tell ourselves and others.  Wolff and her top-notch cast, crew and creative team elevate that story to the next level, creating a show that is not to be missed.”- Austin American-Stateman

The Brothers Size by Tarrell Alvin McCraney

“a timely and potent piece of theatrical magic”

– Austin American-Statesman

“DAMN, can these three actors tell a story”

– Austin Chronicle

The Brothers Size receives our highest recommendation for thoughtful people over the age of twelve. The play is part of a heartfelt conversation about race, not just in America, but in the entire world.  The Austin theatre community should seek it out, as the play and the trilogy of which it is a part bode fair to become landmarks in 21st century American theatre.

– Central Texas Live Theatre

“John Christopher’s Ogun is the soul of the production; his performance so full of pain and fire, so committed and commanding that it’s hard to take your eyes off him, even when he’s not speaking.”

-Austin Chronicle

“a resonant, challenging piece of ritualistic theatre peppered with song and dance, more than worthy of reflection.” 

– Austin Chronicle

“This script places extraordinary demands on a speaking cast, but director Jason Phelps and these actors are well up to the task.”

– Central Texas Live Theatre


“Sean Christopher brings excellent singing and speaking voices to the character of Oshoosi.  Behind these obvious acting talents are quicksilver emotional changes that play across his face and body, sometimes not so obviously, but all of them seeming to telegraph the anguish and thwarted desires of one lost in a hostile bayou world. 

– Central Texas Live Theatre 

  “The chemistry that the two men have as brothers is palpable, and the scenes they share together crackle with electricity as they move from anger to joy to sorrow. ” 

-Austin American-Statesman

I AND YOU by Lauren Gunderson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“King and Benefield have an electric chemistry, one that is believably antagonistic, romantic and platonic, sometimes all at the same time. The deeper that their conversation — and thus their relationship — gets, the more they ratchet up the intensity through subtle tonality and physicality.” Austin American-Statesman

“Nod of respect to Mark Pickell’s set design, for making a “not too girly” bedroom into something more.” – Austin ChronicleMia-King-Kenah-Benefield-I-AND-YOU-Lauren-Gunderson-19

“Under Simone Alexander’s direction, King and Benefield have pushed for a very natural delivery. They’ve succeeded” – Austin Chronicle

“King and Benefield are promising young actors and Alexander holds promise as one of Austin’s new
directors.” –
